VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training

VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training (VOMFT)


VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training Course by Example

This intensive, extended-hours VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vSphere® 5 and effectively using VMware® vCenter™ Operations Manager™. This VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training course combines the content of the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage (Version 6.0) (VICM) course with the VMware vCenter Operations Manager: Analyze and Predict (VCOPS) course. This VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training course explores installation, configuration, and management of vSphere, which consists of VMware ESXi™ and VMware® vCenter Server™. This VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training course also teaches skills in the use of vCenter Operations Manager as a forensic and predictive tool. This VMware vSphere with Operations Management: Fast Track Training course is based on ESXi 5.1, vCenter Server 5.1 and vCenter Operations Manager 5.x.

Students who complete this course are encouraged to enroll in any of several, more advanced vSphere courses.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
